EAST LANSING, Mich. – Trae Waynes intercepted Tommy Armstrong's pass with 30 seconds remaining, and No. 10 Michigan State held off a furious Nebraska rally, beating the No. 19 Cornhuskers 27-22 on Saturday night.
The Spartans (4-1, 1-0 Big Ten) led 27-3 heading into the fourth quarter before three Nebraska touchdowns set up a tense finish. A 43-yard pass to Alonzo Moore gave the Huskers the ball at the Michigan State 37 with just under a minute to play.
But on a day when several other top teams lost in wild upsets, Nebraska (5-1, 1-1) couldn't finish this comeback. Armstrong's pass to the end zone fell incomplete, and Waynes then came up with his second interception of the game.
